It's as easy as shooting fish in a barrel.

I've had far more success hunting at night than during the day. Just make sure you know the terrain so you're able to walk/stalk with no light for a short distance. I usually walk about 10 yds in the dark, stop, shine my light and scan the area. If I don't see little eyes looking back at me I turn off the light and keep moving, slowly and quietly.
Just make sure your local regs allow night hunting! In Idaho that's a no-no!
